BESH’s world class team of professional licensed surveyors offers a wide array of surveying services and types of surveys.
A boundary survey is a way to formally define the boundaries of a property. It focuses largely on defining the corners of a parcel of land. People generally commission boundary surveys before buying, dividing, improving, or building on land.
An ALTA Survey is a detailed survey performed by a registered licensed surveyor, prepared in accordance with the standards specified by the American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the American Congress of Surveying and Mapping (ACSM). This is one of the most detailed surveys available, and while it’s not mandated for every land purchase, there are certainly times when you should consider paying the extra money for an ALTA survey.
– Buying or selling commercial real estate.
– Buying vacant land
– Whenever you want more detailed information about a property
Simply put, the more detailed a survey is, the more protection it provides. Anytime you have concerns about boundary lines or possible disputes, an ALTA survey can reveal those issues, or at least put your mind at ease.
A Topographic Survey is a survey that gathers data about the elevation of points on a piece of land and presents them as contour lines on a plot. The purpose of a topographic survey is to collect survey data about the natural and man-made features of the land, as well as its elevations. Topographic maps are used to show elevations and grading features for architects, engineers, and building contractors.
A tree survey is an important survey that is performed on private or public landscapes. The goal of the survey is to provide useful information on the trees so that property managers or homeowners can make informed decisions.
The survey will reveal information such as:
– Species of the tree based on scientific name.
– Physical measurements of the tree such as height and diameter.
– Age of the tree.
– Overall health of the tree.
– Life expectancy.
– Management recommendations.
